That ODI side is full of flaws. Symonds should be batting in the middle order, not getting the drinks. He's not the only oversight either. I would have Flintoff as captain in preference to Jayawardene and I have no idea why Shane Bond is even in the side. Probably because they needed a token Kiwi.

Be the first in the world to know who will represent Australia in the First 3 mobile Ashes Test at the Gabba when cricket.com.au reveals the team at 1.00pm on 16 November.

With all contenders in action this week, it promises to be a difficult process for the National Selection Panel.

Who will be the final seamer? Clark? Johnson? Tait? Bracken?

And, who will hold down the number six spot? Watson? Clarke? Symonds?

Stuart Clark has impressed with his First-Class performances in November, including taking eight wickets against South Australia recently.

Mitchell Johnson pulled together some great spells in India during the ICC Champions Trophy and could be the wildcard that gives the Aussies the edge.

Watson, Clarke and Symonds are also in action this week and out to impress.

And, is Phil Jaques' hot form putting pressure on the selectors too? With two centuries agains England in three days, he has also put his hand up. Round 3 Pura Cup matches may also influence the line-up, as all players push to press their case for selection.

All the questions will be answered at 1.00pm AEDST on 16 November, when Australia's team for the first 3 mobile Ashes Test is announced exclusively on the official website of Australian cricket, cricket.com.au.
two days!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: the highlight of my day (now cricket discussion thread)

Holy cow


A 700-run win during a limited overs cricket match, and not one six - how's that?

Indian schoolboys Shahbaz Tumbi and B. Manoj Kumar have not just rewritten, but chewed up and spat out, the record books after scoring a mammoth 721 runs from 40 overs during an under-13s tournament on Wednesday.

If that wasn't enough, their team, St Peter's High School, went out and bowled the opposition, St Philips High School, for 21 runs, described as a "meagre total" on the Hyderabad Cricket Association website.

The openers' unheard-of run-rate of more than 18 an over was achieved, remarkably, without either hitting a six. Tumbi scored 324 not out from 116 balls, including 57 boundaries, while Kumar scored at a slightly slower pace, managing 320 not out off 127 balls, featuring 46 fours.

The 721-run total, during an inter-schools tournament at the Gymkhana Grounds in Secunderabad, eclipses the previous partnership record of 664, held by India's cricketing god Sachin Tendulkar and Vinod Kambli.

Three records were broken during their stand: highest total, highest stand and highest margin of victory - in any form of limited-overs cricket at any level.

The BBC reported that several television channels reported live as the pair received cash rewards and prizes by the school management and other well-wishers, while a media frenzy has now descended on the school.

"We went in to the field with only one thing in our minds. We will have to play all 40 overs, score big and make a name for our school," Shahbaz told the BBC.

"We only came to know of the scale of our achievement after we returned to the pavilion.

"Having broken the school record of Sachin Tendulkar, we also want to go up to his level of playing and one day play for India."

Manoj added: "We first thought of scoring a century, then a double century and finally the third one.

"When we were about 64 runs short of breaking the 1998 record, the coach told me about it and we scored it in six overs."

Yep, it is a bit ridiculous, the bowling must have been shocking. The highest ODI score was 438 - which South Africa scored against Australia earlier this year. That was a crazy match - Ponting top scored with 164 and the Aussies broke the record in their innings. Then the Saffers came in and broke it again.

Re: the highlight of my day (now cricket discussion thread)

I love a good sledge and these are some classic ones:


1. After beating the bat on a number of occasions Shaun Pollock told Ricky Ponting, “It’s red, its round and weighs about 5 ounces.” Ponting hit the next ball out of the ground. He jibed, “You know what it looks like, go and find it.”

2. It’s fair to say that Ian Healy – and indeed the entire Australian team - had an icy relationship with pudgy Sri Lankan skipper Arjuna Ranatunga. One extremely hot night in Sydney Ranatunga called for a runner. The television microphones clearly picked up Healy saying, “You don’t get a runner for being an overweight and unfit fat *******.” On another occasion, Shane Warne was trying to lure the led-footed and extremely plump Ranatunga down the pitch. Warne expressed his anguish at not being able to do so. Healy interjected, “Put a Mars Bar on a good length. That should do it.”

3. As Daryll Cullinan – an infamous Shane Warne bunny - came to the crease, the King of Spin taunted him by saying he’d been waiting two years to have another crack him. Cullinan retorted, “Looks like you spent it eating.”

4. English player James Ormond had just come to the crease and was greeted by a tirade of abuse from Mark Waugh: “Mate, what are you doing here? There is no way you’re good enough to play for England.” Ormond responded, “Maybe not, but at least I’m the best player in my family.”

5. When English all-rounder Ian Botham came to the crease in an Ashes Test, Aussie ‘keeper Rod Marsh greeted him with the following pleasantry: “So how’s your wife and my kids.”

6. Merv Hughes was in the middle of a typically hostile spell in the West Indies. He didn’t say a word, but continually stared down Windies great Viv Richards at the end of his run up. Viv retorted, "This is my island, my culture. Don’t you be staring at me. In my culture we just bowl.” Again, Merv didn’t reply. But after dismissing Richards he proudly gave the great man a lesson in Australian way of life: "In my culture we just say f*** off."

7. The Pom’s have always been famous for mocking their own players, with this a particularly good example. After the beer-bellied Mike Gatting was bowled by Shane Warne’s “ball of the century” on the Ashes tour of 1993, his team mate Graham Gooch uttered, “If it had been a cheese roll it would never have got past him.”

8. Likewise, 60’s legend Freddie Truman didn’t mind getting stuck into his own English team mates. After watching an outside edge go right through second slip’s legs, Freddie was obviously angry, but didn’t say a word. At the end of the over, the fielder – Raman Subba Row – came up to Truman and apologised: “Sorry Fred, I should have kept my legs together.” Truman responded, “So should your mother.”

Not on the cricket pitch but Fred Truman once called my father a "cheeky little cunt"

He was working on some farm near where Truman lived, putting in a fence, Truman asked my dad how he got the fence so straight.

"well Fred," said my dad "it's all about line and length"
